This chronology of 9/11 events, based on the 9/11 Commission Report. CNN, Fox, Naudet and Booker Elementary footage play in a 4-way split screen. 9/11 Commission Report findings (and other pertinent news stories) are displayed at their appropriate times. Audio includes radio scan of firemen's radio frequencies.
From what I've been reading about "fair use", news stories are given greater leniency then fiction. And my personal feeling is that I've recontextualized the footage.
I'd like to place this in Public Domain, but of course all the source material is copyright. People can do absolutely anything they want with the footage as far as I'm concerned, but keep in mind my interpretation of the footage as "fair use" is just that... my interpretation. If you use it commercially, no telling what Fox will do.
All but 1 file are the full 44 minute version. The 1 smaller QuickTime is a 12 minute sampler which shows just the My-Pet-Goat timeline.
Note that I'm no longer worried about distributing copies of the DVD (as stated at the end of the video) now that IA is hosting. Downloading the MPEG-2 from IA is just as good as the DVD itself.
Update: Dedicated site created... 911chronology.com
, this 911 Chronology site was created so I could track traffic and offer links to purchase source material (like Naudet doc).
Update: Uploaded source material
. I've received numerous requests for the CNN and FOX live news coverage, so have re-digitized it and compressed it to MPEG-2. While I can't completely isolate the news feeds (as that would be 2 hours of copyrighted news footage), I've simplified the split screen and increased the size so both FOX and CNN each have a dedicated audio channel, and 480x480 resolution. Given the low quality (EP VHS) of the source material, there's not much more to see then that.
Update: It has been pointed out that the first impact occurs at 08:46 not 08:44 (as shown in my video). This is my mistake. If I were to consider redoing this video, does anyone have footage I've overlooked which would be an improvement over my existing coverage?
Update [2006-02-11]: I've seen a very interesting video called Loose Change 2nd Edition
). I can't vouch for its accuracy as it is defenitely NOT 100% CORRECT, but it raises some interesting charges that were completely new to me when I saw it. I've created a conspiracy rebuttal
video before, and generally don't consider myself one to spread charges that haven't been proven true. But on the other hand, the 9/11 Commission Report IS
flawed. It may provide a distinct chronology of events, but I no longer consider it a 100% accurate account. By watching "Loose Change" then "Screw Loose Change" (a detailed rebuttal) one can most quickly get a handle on the conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11. Hopefully I'm not spreading mis-information by promoting Loose Change, but I have concerns about propagating only 911CR. I put a caveat on my video: I don't claim to know its accurate, just that it accurately restates some of 911CR's findings.

Extraordinarily powerful with no speculation and only the facts on show.
I think the most powerful thing about this documentary (if it can be labelled as such) is the she nature of its presentation. It doesnÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂt try to find plots or suggest reasons. It simply shows the facts in a timeline.
My personal story is that weÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂd recently switch to satellite TV (UK) and my partner Sue was flicking channels when she saw the very first reports of the first plan hitting the tower. So I saw the live CNN footage of the second plane, as it happened.
Needless to say, this video brings back a lot of emotions back to the surface; probably more so than any number of clinical blow by blow or detailed investigatory documentaries. Here the footage is live and raw and as I remember it.
As for ridiculous comments with regards spelling mistakes and punctuations by other reviewers; you just canÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂt help but think they are missing the point.
Highly recommended and quite an achievement.
